Ekrem Memnun, Galatasaray odeabank:

“We are happy that we managed to win the first match of this series. We want to win the next game as well and confirm our spot in the next round. We had full control of the game in the first half. We could have scored even more. In the beginning of the thırd period we made many turnovers, it helped them to come back to the game. Tomorrow we will fly to Spain, have a day off and then start getting ready for Friday’s match. It will be a real test for us. We will try to avoid simple errors and win that match. We have the advantage but we will try our best to not have to return for a third match in Istanbul.”
